It is a lovely place to visit if you like thermal waters and water parks. The aquatic park has the perfect balance between tranquillity and enjoyment. Very nice family atmosphere. Different swimming pools, Jacuzzi, excellent relaxing views. Restaurants, picnic areas and facilities to do the BBQ.
Nice warm waters. There is a hotel inside the park, and facilities to camp,
The personnel at the Park is polite and professional. The park has been getting better and better through the years. On Sundays can be very busy.
thank you.

This unique and rare natural place in the middle of several hills, it's a water park fueled by a géiser. A thermal source of water and vapor.
Several pools are installed for the public, water goes from 85o to climate temperature.

The place is beautiful, semi arid vegetation around and a nice climate, but the installations are quite neglected, dirty bathrooms, lots of garbage in the gardens, dressing-rooms stinks, people smokes and eats near the pools or invade ways with camping tents, also every group of people have their own loud music.
Such an amazing nature like place with the spirit of an ugly street market.
Also a bit expensive, food is not good, the best option is to take food with you and have a picnic after relaxing in some of the pozas.

Place is full of people mostly families with little kids. The shallow pools that are full of little kids are cool enough to swim but too shallow and cramped. The deep pool is small and practically boiling.
There was no space to lay down. All the patches of grass were either covered in tents or dirty.

The three balnearios (aqua parks) that I mostly visit in Tecozautla are: El Arenal, El Geiser and La Cruz.
All three are really great but each has it’s specialty.
El Arenal is the best for: Hydro massage, food, the hotel
El Geiser is the best for: The water (sulphuric), the tirolesa (zip line), variety of pools, hotels (3)
La Cruz is the best for: The nature, the water slides
All three have 38 degree water, parking, camping area and restaurants.
All three are great but…

El Geiser has a hydro massage but it is not as strong as the one in El Arenal and it works only for 15 minutes at a time, every ½ hour. It has mushrooms that drop water from about 10 feet and these can be used for a massage. Note that the water is slightly sulphuric.

It’s water slides are for kids only.

It also has small pools, on the upper level that are basically made for 2 to 4 persons. Very private.

It’s camping areas are really nice and the restaurants, although not of the quality of the Arenal, are perfect for camping and inexpensive meals.

No alcool is allowed on this site.

Being in a valley surrounded by mountains, it is warmer than the others which is great when you get out of the pool.
There are 3 hotels for different prices, 2 of which are situated within a 1 minute walk from the pools.

he Canopy Tour (Zip line) is in service only on weekends, and holiday season from 9:00 am to 5: 00 pm.

It is open 24 hours a day.

This place has won international prizes for being well managed.

We enjoyed out stay at the geyser:
Top: the geyser itself with the steam room next to it, the staff is really friendly, the food and drinks very convenient and good.
Minus: people with clothes in the pools and unfortunately taking care of body treatments (peeling..) staff should definitely be stricter on this point. Noone wants to get into a warm water pool with people scratching their feet...

To my opinion the perfect place for kids as water is never deeper than one meter and the amenities are actually meant for smalll kids.

Eventhough it is a park that takes advantage of the geiser´s water to have swimming pools with warm water, and it is amazing to feel the hot water going out of the earth, It is not enough on weekends, there are a lot of people. To know the geiser not in its natural form is worth enough to get there. I liked the experience to be there

We went with a group - 2 couples (in their 30s) and one 4 year old. Get there early (we arrived at 8:30 am and there were MANY people already there) as people camp there overnight and you will want to find a good place to claim as your own. There are no lockers, so be careful what you bring in with you (or always have someone watching the bags). Cost to get in was 120 pesos/person with the 4 year old being free. You get a wrist band and if you keep it one can come back in the park the next day until 12pm included in the price. Plastic tables and chairs are available to rent (we got 4 chairs and 1 table for the day for 100 pesos). They also had umbrellas, but they don't fit into the center of the table. There are many pools on different levels. I recommend doing a lap through the park before you settle into one area, You can bring in food and drinks, but no glass bottles or alcohol. Alcohol is not sold in the park, but there are small tiendas outside the park that sell alcohol. There is a good restaurant inside the park if you don't want to bring in food. Close to the top tier of the park is the Zipline portion. This costs an additional 150 pesos per person and includes 4 long ziplines, 1 suspension bridge, and 1 suspended cord crossing. This portion took about 2 hours. We had a great time doing it, but it was strenuous in the heat and had a lot of climbing of stairs involved. You must be 10 years old and wear closed toed shoes to do it.

It was my first time to visit spa in Mexico.
Steam bath was good for me. I didn't go to hot tub but this steam bath was enough for me.
It is not short distance from D.F it took 3hrs but it was good experience to us.

This place is around 1 hour drive from Queretaro.
Amazing place to visit. Natural geiser designed into number of private pools. Many pools varying temperature from 25 C to 40 C. you can chose your pool put a tent and stay overnight there. They have many barbeque places available
Very cheap. (80 pesos per person in 2012).
Being a tourist place restaurants in the vicinity are cheap.
